My Son's Hero


When I asked my son who his hero was,
I thought that there'd be a long pause,
I expected him to say someone like Messi,
On the strength that he always scores!
Instead though he really surprised me
And said Grandad deserved his applause,
He's my hero and someone I look up to
And he's someone he truly adores...

    It's always encouraging to hear that a youngster admires and respects the older generation. That's a feather in your cap too, it's learned behaviour. Enjoyable read. (Report) Reply
